Staff always attentive. Had the most beautiful ravioli stuffed with crab, pasta was almost transparent and filling really fresh. Steak and Calves liver always very good.

Terrible service and small portions and then there's the price! 30 min wait Wrong food came at wrong times. Tiny tiny vegetarian pizza for ~£15. Pasta overcooked. Tables didn't seem clean. Pizza breaks as as a biscuit One word of advice; AVOID.

This is a typical interpretation of what we believe an Italian restaurant would be like, it has rustic charm, waiters with Italian accents and serves Italian food, however the food isn’t any better than average and the prices don’t reflect this, the atmosphere is typical...More

Took the family out for a treat and thought this would be a nice place. However it’s very average, not much better than Pizza Hut. Would not go again.
